Arrive in Tenerife and transfer to our base in the town of La
Orotava, famous for its street tapestries of flowers and
coloured sands during the Feast of Corpus Christi - and a
wonderful location to start our adventure in Tenerife.
You transfer by local bus to Aguamansa, where you start your
walk today. Following a circular route the natural park "Parque
Natural de Corona Forrestal" you walk the wooded slopes beneath
Mt Teide. Along the way you ascend to Los Órganos - a natural
series of basalt rock formations that resemble huge organ pipes.
You return to your hotel in La Orotava for the night.
A short transfer brings you to La Montañeta where you head up
from the church of San Francisco to the villages of Las Arenas
Negras and then continue west to the village of Erjos. You then
start to drop down and walk along an ancient path and farmland,
through bay laurel to reach your destination at the little village
square in Los Silos. Rest and enjoy a relaxing drink in the shade
here while you wait for the bus to Garachico.
Another transfer by bus brings you to the western part of Tenerife
for a walk through open woodlands, across farmland and along
spectacular gorges or 'barrancos' to the small village of Teno
Alto. You then follow paths across the plateau, walking amongst
fields of giant euphorbia cacti plants. When the weather is clear
weather, you are blessed with wonderful views off this high plateau
across to the island of La Gomera.
Our transport brings you from Garachico to your next accommodation
in the morning - nestled on the edge of El Teide crater. You
have the opportunity of a walk which ascends Guajara (Tenerife's
second highest peak) or you can take advantage of a shorter 6km
walk around the Roques de Garcia in this stunning landscape.
Today you have another day of walking in the unique surroundings
of El Teide and Las Cañadas. Leading away from El Parador de
las Cañadas you follow small dusty tracks Get better acquainted
with El Pico del Teide, wandering through the bizarre landscape
of Las Cañadas. Again, several options. The standard walk leads
from the Parador to El Portillo partly along the 'pensionades'
- an easy-to-follow unsurfaced track, with magnificent views.
At the end of the day's walk you transfer by taxi to La Laguna.
Our final day's walking brings you to the north of the Island
and the Anaga range of mountains. This is a challenging but very
rewarding day in the impressive surroundings of high coastal
cliffs and deep mountain gorges. Walking
along steep green mountainsides that are resplendent in lush
vegetation, you will visit the villages of Afur and Taborno on
your way to Las Carboneras and the end of your walk. You are met
by our transport and transferred back to your hotel.
